This conversation with Donita Sparks of L7 starts with a look back at the Alternative Nation Festival in 1995 and the band’s connection with Australian audiences. We’ll discuss the unique qualities of Donita’s guitar tone, which echoes Tom Warrior from Celtic Frost’s style with a punk twist, and delve into how this sound was honed over time. The conversation will touch on the band’s distinctive groove, the process of riff-writing, and Donita’s musical inspirations. We’ll revisit the early reception of Nirvana’s Nevermind and get Donita’s perspective on The Prodigy’s cover of the L7 cut, “Fuel My Fire.” We clear up if Jennifer Finch ever played with Moby’s band and whether Oliver Stone personally reached out for the “Natural Born Killers” soundtrack contribution. Reflecting on the 30th anniversary of the notorious ‘Tampongate’ at the Reading Festival, we’ll discuss its place in the band’s history. The interview will also cover the band’s advocacy efforts through Rock for Choice and whether Donita still identifies with the feminist movement, followed by her views on current issues regarding transgender individuals in sports, prisons, and beauty pageants.
